Written by on April 7, 2024

The Omala Women Forum in Kogi State has declared a three-day fasting and prayers over the incessant killings in the area.

The group, while reacting to the recent killing of 25 people, condemned the assaults and indiscriminate slaying of innocent indigenes and the ruthless destruction of properties in Agojeju-Odo, Omala Local Government Area of the State by suspected herders.

The Iye Ebulejonu Of Igala Kingdom, Chief Hon. Alima Abuh, in a statement on behalf of the group on Sunday unequivocally condemned the incident and demanded that the perpetrators be apprehended and subjected to the full force of the law.

The statement reads in part, “This senseless rampage has led to the tragic deaths of several persons and the decimation of properties worth millions of naira.

“We have zero tolerance for those who flagrantly disregard human dignity and the basic tenets of peaceful coexistence.

“We call upon the government to urgently undertake a comprehensive on-site assessment of the scale of killings and destruction of properties carried out by these assailants, which we believe is ongoing, with a view to providing urgent succour and relief to the victims.

“We have mobilized our members across the 11 wards of the local government area to undertake a 3-day period of fasting and prayers for our land.

“We are confident that the deities of our ancestral lands, as well as the Almighty God we collectively worship, will heed our fervent supplications during this time of mourning and grief.

“We extend our deepest condolences to the bereaved families and love ones. We pray that our fallen heroes and heroines be granted eternal rest. May the Almighty and the deities of our ancestral lands provide comfort and solace to those mourning the devastating loss of their cherished family members and community members. We stand in solidarity with all those affected by this senseless tragedy”.
